3D printed parts created with fused deposition modeling (FDM) technology find multiple uses in the medical industry. Designers are relying on this technology to build concept models, functional prototypes, factory tooling, and even finished goods. Doctors, surgeons, and hospitals are also using 3D printing for new medical device designs, training and simulation, and testing and research.
FDM 3D printing for medical applications will continue to grow as new materials and new ideas are realized.
How do you select the proper materials for FDM 3D printing? Users must understand the capabilities and limitations of FDM materials, including toughness, electrostatic dissipation, and biocompatibility.
Download this eBook to learn more about medical applications and materials for FDM 3D printing – and how 3D printing can be a new way to design new products that were unthinkable or unmanufacturable with traditional technologies.
